Last WIP post, I had 5 Quilts that I was working on. I feel like I have just been making blocks for the past two weeks. I can’t wait to get these things sewn into quilts!
1) I have had no progress on my Homeward Bound Christmas Quilt.
2) Skill Builder Sampler: I have finished the three wonky blocks from this last month. The Wonky Log Cabin, the Wonky Star, and the Wonky fan. It was a lot of fun. Here are those blocks.
3) I have cut a log of Bees Knee’s Fabric (by Terrie Mangat) into triangles with a few solids. I don’t want to show the blocks yet, but here’s a peek at the pile of triangles I have cut and sorted.
4) and 5) I have decided to use my Granny Squares for Teacher Quilts. I’ll need 30 per quilt, and so far, I think I’ve made a total of 40. I’m on may way!
6) I have added a new quilt to the list, except this one will be in progress for a while. I have taken up Candi’s Monthly Challenge (at Raccoon Creek Quilts), and started making blocks with my leaders and enders (instead of finishing a block and pulling the thread out to clip it, you sew two blocks of another quilt together, so as to not waste and maximize your time and thread). I was skeptical at first if I would be able to do this challenge, mostly because I chain piece everything, and I hardly have leaders and enders. Plus, I was not in the habit of utilizing what leaders and enders I had. But, I have had bags of teeny tiny scraps, both white and color fabric, and I knew that I could never just sit down in one sitting and sew all of these little pieces together to make blocks. So, I used this challenge to get this little quilt rolling. It will be scrappy, and I am excited to have this one finally moving along. Thanks for the challenge, Candi.
So, I started out with five, finished none, added one. Six projects now. Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.
